Colorful Ideas for Fall Flower Containers

Fall flowers

As summer gives way to fall, it’s time to think about new flowers for your containers and beds. The cooler weather may limit your choices in some areas, but there are still plenty of plants and flowers to brighten up your porch or planter.

Read on for nine colorful ideas to brighten up your fall flower containers!


  1. Thank you for fall ideas. I love container gardening especially this time of year, trying to keep that summer color going year round. I live in a very rural area with acres of foliage around me, so whatever isn’t growing in my garden I usually find in the woods to decorate my landscape. I generally use all natural foliage every time I decorate in and outdoors whether its a front door decoration or a small container indoors. Again thank you for some ideas on container decorating, I look forward to your next newsletter. I wish I had discovered your site earlier. And just a suggestion I really liked your cover photo of container decorating but had to guess what flowers they were, listing them would have been made it easy to figure out what they were.

  2. Love the idea of fall flowers; so colorful. I libve in the south so the weather does not change to dramatic here, do you have any suggestions for Florida Fall gardens?

  3. My name is David just moved in my House I have hedges along the front of the House but I want to remove the hedges and replace with NICE flowers for all year round any ideas on how I can do that ?

    • Hi, David,
      The rules of gardening vary by region. You didn’t include the location, so we suggest contacting your local Master Gardeners association.
      Master gardeners train on a range of topics so they can provide advice, at no charge, for people in their area.
      Good luck!
